Rogue Ohio Power Bar

Fully machined and assembled in Columbus, OH, the 29MM Rogue Ohio Power Bar features a 205,000 PSI steel shaft (200,000 PSI for Stainless), single powerlifting knurl marks, and center knurling. The bar’s knurl pattern is deep and coarse without being sharp or abrasive, and the 29MM shaft diameter and high tensile strength result in little to no flex or whip. This makes the Ohio Power Bar a perfectly honed workhorse for the bench, squat, and deadlift.

The 45LB Ohio Power Bar includes bronze bushings, a snap ring design, and 16.25" of loadable sleeve length.

When ordering, you can select from three finish options:

  • Black Zinc shaft with Bright Zinc sleeves
  • Stainless Steel shaft with Chrome sleeves
  • Bare Steel

Rogue also manufactures a 20KG Ohio Power Bar, with friction-welded sleeves and 16.25" loadable sleeve space.

Specifications:

  • Made in Columbus, OH, USA
  • More aggressive knurling for powerlifting
  • Center knurl for added “stick” to the back during squats
  • 29MM Diameter and 205,000 PSI tensile strength (200,000 for Stainless) for greater rigidity and reduced whip
  • Bronze Bushings and Snap Ring Design for smooth spin
  • Weight: 45LB
  • Finish Options: Black Zinc Shaft / Bright Zinc Sleeves, Stainless Shaft / Chrome Sleeves, or Bare Steel
  • Lifetime Warranty against bending*
  • 1205,000 PSI Steel (200,000 PSI For Stainless)

    The Ohio Power Bar’s 29MM diameter steel shaft boasts a tensile strength of 205,000 PSI (200,000 PSI for Stainless), delivering superior rigidity and virtually zero whip/flex. Machined and assembled in Columbus, Ohio, the bar also features a snap-ring design and quality bronze bushings for a smooth, consistent feel.

  • 2Aggressive Knurl

    The bar includes single powerlifting marks and a center knurl, each featuring a deep, coarse pattern that produces a reliable grip / stick without being sharp or abrasive. Perfecting this knurl pattern is both a science and an art. Every bar shaft is machined in Columbus on new Haas machines (built in the USA) and fine-tuned and personally tested by the Rogue team.

  • 3Three Finish Options

    Depending on the look and feel you prefer, there is a version of the Ohio Power Bar right in your wheelhouse. The Zinc option (black shaft, bright sleeves) provides excellent corrosion resistance, the Bare Steel creates a classic look and natural feel, and the new Stainless Steel variation (with Chrome sleeves) strikes a balance between the two.

  • 4Use It With These Other Rogue Products

    Ohio Power Bar owners can use this barbell in conjunction with a broad range of other top caliber Rogue powerlifting products, from the Westside Bench and R-3 Power Rack to deadlift bar jacks, Wagon Wheel plates, and Calibrated Steel Plates.

  • 5Lifetime Warranty

    The Ohio Power Bar’s quality construction is backed by Rogue’s Lifetime Warranty against bending. This is a barbell equipped for high intensity, everyday use. Please Note: The warranty does not cover damage due to negligent or faulty use, alteration, maintenance, storage or handling by the user, i.e., dropping the bar on a box, bench, spotter arms or pins in a power rack, excessive dropping with insufficient or damaged bumpers, or excessive dropping with iron plates, and similar usage. Any specific issues regarding a Rogue product with which a customer is not satisfied will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

  • 6Fast Rogue Shipping

    Orders placed by 3PM ship the same day. The Rogue Shipping System allows you to track your order from the time you place it to the time it hits your door. Order today, track today.

Please Note: Like any fine piece of machined steel, a bare steel barbell will require some upkeep. Occasionally brushing the bar down with 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 will create a beautiful patina look. This is how bars were made for decades and it really does produce an unmatched feel.

F Scale™
The F Scale™ is a durability scale for barbells based on functional testing at stresses similar to what barbells experience when being dropped from overhead. Bars that have been treated with Rogue Work Hardening (RWH™) are designated by having an R in their F Rating™. For more information on F Scale™ click here.

Oxidation Rate
The resistance of a barbell to oxidation depends on the type of steel and the coating. Barbells at the lower end of the spectrum will require more care and maintenance to preserve their appearance than barbells at the upper end of the spectrum.

Rogue Ohio Power Bar is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 252.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best power bar under $300 I was hesitant to buy this bar with the bare steel finish at first because I thought oiling it would be a mess. Honestly though, the oiling is extremely easy, and the 3in1 oil tends to stick to the bar rather than splatter everywhere when you rub it into the knurling with a nylon brush. Piece of cake. The hype about the “feel” of the bare steel is justified. It feels a little “rougher” or at least less slick than zinc or chrome, sorta like extremely fine grit sandpaper. Add that on top of the aggressive knurling and what you got is a bar that really doesn’t need chalk to grip even for heavy deadlifts. If this bar comes out of your hands, your grip is definitely the problem. I also kinda like the thought of the bar forming a patina over time as I care for it. It’s a labor of love, and the one barbell finish you have to earn instead of buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bar for my garage gym. I purchased this bar during the cyber Monday sale and so fair I absolutely love it. This bar will last me a long time even living in the midwest with the weather change and having the bar in my garage gym. The Cerakote is stunning on this bar. I have the all black bar. Knurl is definitely aggressive but not too much it's just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of art. Knurl is aggressive. Very grippy. Perfect bar for benching and squat. If your not doing any Olympic lifts, get a power bar. I chose the stainless version instead of cerakote, no need fancy colors that can get chip and scratch. Stainless steel will always look perfect after many years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As expected This is one of the premium powerlifting bars On the market and does not disappoint. Would recommend to anyone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bar I went for the bare steel since I dont mind if it gets a petina, its not exactly going to rust away any time soon, it does start getting surface rust quite soon on any places your skin touches, on mine its where my shoulders touch the bar during a squat. My previous bar was a standard bar so this is better in every way. The knurling is excellent, I can't tell if im gripping the bar or if its gripping me lol, definitely feel more secure in my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! Ive been consistently lifting weights for the past 8 years and most of my routine is done strictly with a barbell. Bench press, squats, rows, barbell curls, military peas, you get the idea. So naturally I’ve come to be pretty picky about my barbells. I’m sure others know why I’m talking about when I say not all barbells are equal. You know when you pick up a barbell and it just doesn’t have the right feel. Feels cheap, grips are off, diameter is off. That sort of thing. Those little things can make a big diffeeenc especially when your lifting heavy. With that being said this is by far the beat barbell I’ve ever used. It is what I would call perfect! Feels right. It doesn’t bend, the grip is nice and deep so it actually lets you grip it, bo chalk needed really. The spacing of the rings is perfect, diameter is perfect. And it just “feels” good. You can tell when you pick it up it’s high quality. Like I said this is the best barbell I’ve ever used and that’s coming from a guy who’s very picky so that says something. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you guys for such a great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bar I've Owned This is by far the best barbell I've purchased. The knurl stands out the most to me. I almost feel like I don't even need chalk when doing deadlifts. Very minimal whip compared to the barbells I've owned. It's an overall spectacular bar. I highly recommend it to anyone that seriously lifts.
